Well, this'll be my first airsofting, but somehow I feel I'm going to be relying a lot on my actual army training (mainly for fieldcraft, but who knows it might be handy for the combat too. I don't see why it would be all that different)

Before I did airsoft I'd done some paintball and alot of hunting with rifles/shotguns/air rifles. I'd imagine being in the army you're even more experienced again so you're very much right in thinking that as you play instinct and fieldcraft just kicks in. the only real difference being that you dont use the sights so much in airsoft as the bb's tend not to stick to the sight line. Oh and that at range you can often dodge bb's heh

one better than me, i'll only be relying on having watched 'Cross of Iron' too many times.

Correction - you can never watch Cross of Iron too many times! :D

Fire and moment works, having the discipline to cover assigned arcs works but i reality a lot of your fieldcraft you dont get to apply.

I was disappointed to find it out myself too... :)

The biggest thing you'll have as an advantage is impetus and controlled agression.

Being able to just get up and put in the assault and rally guys round you is important.

The main thing is you'll be thinking in engagement ranges in hundreds of metres where as *everything* in airsoft is below 100

Patrol skills are and movement *very* useful.

And should you ever find yourself gaming with other trained soldiers (four out of six of us in my old team Red Star Battlalion were former soldiers) then it works a lot better as you can trust each other to watch arcs, stag on without getting bored and wandering off etc.

The biggest adjustment for me was realising that i just wasn't going to hit things i thought i could with a smoothbore bb gun and that you really do need to put about three rounds down for the effect of one to counter for wind, deflective undergrowth and players simply not feeling it.

Hope you see what i mean, all good skills but mine were not quite as ninja as i'd thought they 'd be once in the field.

:)

And treat the event more like a tactical board game. There are lots of things that stymie the usual things, like there's no element of surprise and dead people come back to life.

Oh, and remember that there a people from all walks of life, some like acting like soldiers, taking orders and getting shouted at, others don't.
